Re: QCX mini: RF output BNC or SMA #poll-notice


I hope the suggestion for including SMA connector pads on the PCB will still stand, even if SMA is not the "official" connector. (As noted previously, the SMA connector pad layout also permits the more-reliable MCX and probably other small-format RF connectors as well)

Hi all

On the topic of BNC vs SMA preference for the QCX mini RF connector... I
closed the poll since it had been open for a few days and I think everyone
had a chance.

Of the 5,136 members of this group, 118 votes were received (2.3% voter


BNC: 90 votes (76%)
SMA: 28 votes (24%)

So. There you go. Democracy. Two mainstream choices, neither of which may
actually represent your views. Only a minority of voters actually bother to
vote. Wow. We might almost be voting for the leadership of our country! Hi
hi. Except that the result would be a lot closer and then we could spend
the next 4 years arguing about it :-)
